Loyola Can't Sustain First-Set Hitting Against Lady Governors
Sept. 6, 2008
KENNESAW, Ga. - The Loyola volleyball team hit .364 in the first set against Austin Peay State in the final match of the Owls Challenge at Kennesaw State, but the Greyhounds could not continue the solid attack in the final two games and lost to the Lady Governors, 25-20, 25-14, 25-15.
Nicole Scimeme led the Greyhounds with six kills in the match, finishing the three matches at the Challenge with a team-high 25 kills along with 24 digs, to earn All-Tournament honors.
The Greyhounds recorded 12 kills without an error on 33 swings in the first set for the .364 hitting percentage, their best in a single-set this season.
Loyola (1-5) led early in the first set, taking an 8-4 advantage on a Stasia Collins ace, before Austin Peay State rallied to score four in a row and tie the set at 8-8.
The Lady Governors (6-2) then went ahead by four, 14-10, before Jordan Sickman broke up the Austin Peay State run with a kill.
Karlee Woodward had a solo block of Kristen Distler to tie the set at 16-16, but Stephanie Champine put away a kill to give the Lady Governors the lead for good.
Loyola would pull within a point, 19-18, on a Scimeme kill, but Austin Peay scored six of the last eight points to win the set.
The Greyhounds open their home schedule on Tuesday, September 9, with a 7 p.m. match in Reitz Arena against Morgan State.
